Global Overview of the Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market (TPU)

Published: Apr 2011 | No Of Pages: 239 | Published By: IAL Consultants

Product Synopsis

This is the third edition of IAL’s report on the thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) market, describing the global production and consumption of TPUs. Although these products account for less than 5% of the total production of polyurethane products, they represent a fast growing and highly versatile part of the industry. TPUs, unlike all other products within the polyurethane industry, are supplied as a fully reacted material that is processed in two main ways to manufacture a huge range of products for many industries. In effect, TPUs ability to bridge the gap between rubber and conventional thermoplastic elastomers allows the material numerous opportunities for application.
